The miniature modelling world often runs dry when it comes to originality, with many painters referencing the work of others. Not that there’s anything wrong with this, in fact mimicry is often flattery. However, sometimes a gem comes along, like the Butterfly Necrons, or the Hello Kitty marines, something truly original with elements juxtaposed in such a way to make you take a second look.

John Betts’ entry for the July painting challenge (Hero) is one of those unique creations – it will make you stop and stare and then make you smile.
